Abstract: Pronounced adrenarche with precocious pubarche (PP) in girls has been associated with hyperinsulinism and subsequent functional ovarian hyperandrogenism (FOH). Recently, pronounced adrenarche and insulin resistance have each been related to low birth weight. We have now tested the hypothesis that the frequent concurrence of PF with pronounced adrenarche, FOH, and hyperinsulinemia in girls may be secondary to separate relationships between these conditions and low birth weight.
